Hi, I am Cynthia. I have worked as a career nanny for over 10 years. I have many lovely, outstanding references--I maintain long-term relationships with my families. I provide guidance, love, and consistency. I am child-centered and work to enrich kids' mental, emotional and physical growth.

Raising children well entails helping them become well-adjusted--their best selves. To prepare them to do well--and do good. I think we all should aspire to be "citizens of the world", operating with a sense of enlightened self-interest to guide us.

With young children, I am most concerned with helping them understand the world around them, to feel secure, loved and respected, to learn to handle their emotions, and to "play well with others" (children and adults, literally and figuratively).

Academic learning is important, but working with young children, I incorporate teaching organically, all the time. Anything can be a teachable moment. I encourage children's curiosity, even wonder, and foster learning in a fun way, throughout the days.

I take a positive approach to guidance, modeling appropriate behavior, redirecting, removing from situations if necessary but not giving too much attention to reward negative behaviors. I set clear boundaries and am gentle, but firm and consistent.
I just moved here from New York City. I am college educated, honest, mature and athletic. I enjoy cooking simple, healthy meals.

I'd love to hear back from you if you think we might have a good fit.

Take good care,
Cynthia V.
